Albert & bus driver Carlos gave me & my 4 friends from SC, the day trip of a lifetime!! Albert taught us so many wonderful historic details, even added humorous stories that brought this history to life! I travel often, and have never experienced a guide so well informed, happy, delightful to be with, charming, and familiar with his homeland!! Albert is the BEST!! Carlos navigated the tricky switchback roads and always had a smile. I now want to return to Mallorca To hire him again! Thank you!!! ....Anita

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Anita, for writing one of the best reviews I have ever read! It was a great day out with the best SC girls in the world! I am very happy to read your wonderful words about Mallorca and myself. Besides, it is very kind of you to mention Carlos the driver. I will pass him the review too. I only look forward to your next visit to the island. All the best to Gina, Meredith, Patt and you, Anita. You have a friend in this rock!

Albert is FULL OF KNOWLEDGE and as importantly, FULL OF PERSONAILTY. Not only will you learn so much of the history of Palma and of the island as well, you will be spending 3 or so hours talking, listening and sharing thoughts with a new friend. Don't miss an opportunity to walk with Albert.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour in your company and it was great to exchange points of view about so many political and social topics (both old and new). History is my life and I am more than happy to read the tour and the city fulfilled your expectations.

I had very limited time in Palma, and the best decision I made was to do these two tours with Albert. I learned so many interesting things and I felt that I got to know the rich history of this beautiful city very well, discovering many hidden gems and places that I would never have come across if I had not gone on this tour with Albert. He is a truly wonderful guide and I appreciate his knowledge, expertise and care on the tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am speechless again, Ming. Thank you! This a wonderful review and I much appreciate your words. Palma is the city I was born and raised, so it makes me really happy to have been able to show you its secrets and history. I also learnt a lot from you, since your interest for Palma and its historical background took us from one topic to another. I thoroughly enjoyed your company and I hope you come back to Palma for more! My best wishes to you!

Albert is a fantastic tour guide - one of the best I've had. He knows a lot about Mallorca because he has a PhD in the history of the Balearic Islands. He is able to tell you many interesting facts in an entertaining and informative way. He is also a flexible guide who will tailor the tour to what you want to do. I learned so much about Soller, Deia, Valldenossa, and Mallorca in general. I enjoyed both my tours with him very much and only wish I had time to do more tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time in writing this kind review, Ming! I am more than flattered by what you say about me and the tour. It was a pleasure to adapt the activity to your needs so you could enjoy it to the maximum! I am happy you liked Soller, Deia and Valldemossa so much. We had a great day out in the mountains and I hope we can go on tour again the next time you visit Mallorca; there is a lot to do and see! All the best!

Our tour with Albert in Palma and Valldemossa was amazing and incredible. Albert was very knowledgeable and informative. We greatly enjoyed our time with him. He did a fantastic job of getting us to all the major sights before the cruise ship shore excursions hit. We are very appreciative of all that he did for us that day. Valldemossa was wonderful. A place all should go and visit.

Six of us from the UK had an excellent 3 hour tour of Palma led by Albert Bouzas in June 2018. His historical knowledge of how Palma had developed over the centuries was immense and added significantly to our enjoyment and understanding of Palma today. If you want somthing more than 'here is a church' and 'now for the catherdral' then Albert is your man.

Albert is an extraordinary guide, very professional and knowledgable. He was able to accommodate our last minute requests and he even gave us some tips on where we could go during our stay in Palma. Thank you so much for suggesting us to keep walking a little bit longer to get to a better beach, Albert! My friend isn't a history lover and she ended up fascinated by this tour.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Port Sóller and Valldemossa with Albert - it was definitely one of the high points of our trip to Mallorca. His knowledge and love of history and the countryside is obvious, and contagious! We learned much and had a fun, full day with him. He is a warm, engaging person and made the history of the area fascinating. (He even surprised us with some cocas de patatas- a favorite from a local pastry shop in Valldemossa. They were delicious!) Highly recommend!

Our guide, Albert, in Palma was extremely knowledgeable about details of the history of the area. We enjoyed meeting him and were amazed at how commited he was to share all he knew. We would and should have suggested that he add a few interesting and lighter appreciation of the beautiful town. We heard through friends we should have definitely been encouraged to go inside the cathedral and the market place. That would have added to the information of the town and provide a couple pleasant visuals.

He points out the monsters & creatures on buildings & churches thru-out, the city's mix of charming shops & family owned businesses, a 600 yr old olive tree & an ornate City Hall w/ giant paper mâché figures paraded thru the streets on holidays. Best stop was the Mercado Oliva, a modern indoor market filled w/ everything you could possibly eat or drink. Albert, warm & funny, leads us to "his" tapas shop - great lunch, great tour

Albert was a well versed energetic guide for our Palma excursion. His carefully worded question based description was backed up with knowledge-based answers to his queires. In his next career I predict Albert will be a college professor. This beautiful capitol of the Balleric Islands is steeped in a complicated geo-political history that was unfolded to us in an understandable manner by Albert. From the oldest olive tree to the Mallorican pearls, the day in Palma was a photographer's delight.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You leave me speechlees, Dr. Chivian! Thank you very much for this nice review and your lovely words about me and the tour. I am very glad to read this activity fulfilled your interests. The tour about the Mallorcan Jews is one of the most complicated I have ever designed due to the scarce information existing about it. This is why it makes me really happy to see it helped you to understand the importance of Hebrew culture in the Medieval Mallorca. I hope to see you again soon!

He was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Mallorca, and his use of the vintage map provided useful historical and geographic context for us.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Palma with Albert. We were amazed by his historical knowledge of the area and were able to see just how Palma has evolved over the past 2,000 years to what it is today. The many places we visited on our tour were so memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, Mr. Gawloski. It was my pleasure to meet you and to guide you throughout the city. You were all really nice and showed a lot of interest in Palma. There cannot be anything more satisfactory for a guide-historian :) I hope we meet again in Mallorca!
